Use standard 243 data and then proceed SLOWLY above the max load for about 3-5%. Watching signs but when you get to an accurate load stop there with it. Wife shoots one and loves it!

To hot to list. I would start at 48.0gr with the RL-25 and the 105's and work your way up. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
